I'm doing the same kind of request to an IIS7 and IIS8 server, but I keep getting this 416 response

curl-7.23.1-win64-ssl-sspi>curl -H Range:bytes=16- -I http://my.local.host/dotnetrocks_0813_syme_battochi.mp3

HTTP/1.1 416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable

The range is clearly within the file size, but I'm still not getting a 206 response. What am I missing here?
